The Nigeria Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative says the country earned $741.48 billion from the oil and gas sector between 1999 and 2020.

Dr Ogbonnaya Orji, the Executive Director of NEITI, disclosed this on Wednesday during a Multi-stakeholder Roundtable in Abuja.

Orji said NEITI had conducted 30 reconciliatory reports, revealing that Nigeria made N635.3 billion from the solid mineral sector between 2006-2020.
